Hi all! Kerri has made it through her 3rd booster without any major problems. These treatments are a bit rough to go through physically and emotionally. Dr. Cantu is very pleased that there have been no RSD flare ups in other parts of her body and she’s done so well that he said we may be able to stop the boosters now. She’ll remain in the hospital for a few more days so they can monitor her closely as all the medications are lowered. He spent at least 2 hours with her watching over her carefully, answering all of our questions (I tend to be a bit of overprotective, “we need to know everything” Mom when we come here – the people in this hospital are quite patient with me!), and visiting with us.
We find it quite sweet that each day during the boosters, Kerri holds her hands together and holds onto her ring from Jeff. Jeff, you are always on her mind and she loves you very, very much!
We have another little side note about the nice things people do for us here. On the first night we were here at the hospital, Erin and I were in the cafeteria. The manager remembered us from last year. I was looking for some pepper to bring up for Kerri for her mashed potatoes. When I asked for pepper, the manager smiled and showed me where the shaker was but told me to wait “un momento”. She came back in a minute with a specially prepared container of special “robusto” pepper to last Kerri for the week. Kerri has enjoyed it and felt special.
Thanks again for all of your prayers and for writing to us – it definitely makes us all feel closer to home and very reassured.
